The Promise Resource Center purchases new building to expand services provided to the public, is planning move for late Summer 2019.
April 29, 2019, Charlotte Hall, MD– The Promise Resource Center is excited to announce that they will be moving to a new location in Hughesville in late Summer 2019. Situated centrally to the tri-county area, this new location will not only offer easier access to Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s counties, it will also provide PRC the opportunity to expand its programs and services.
Plans to renovate the new building are in full swing. These changes are anticipated to be complete by early July 2019. During the renovation process, PRC continues to offer all classes and resources for child care providers and caregivers at their current location. As the move-in day approaches, the grand re-opening will be announced on PRC’s website and Facebook page.
Executive Director, Kelly Hutter, said, “This is a great time for The Promise Resource Center. Not only is it exciting as a nonprofit to be able to purchase our own building, but we are excited about the possibilities that come with more space. This building will help us expand our services and hopefully reach more families and caregivers in the process.”

About The Promise Resource Center
With 30 years of service to Southern Maryland, we have long been the leading provider of training, resources and certification for those who care for children in the tri-county area (Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s). Though constantly evolving, the services have always been based on the belief that providing information and support to adults results in the success of children, strengthening the community as a whole. Specifically, we provide an array of resources to support parents, grandparents, foster parents and licensed family and center child care providers. Our core purpose is to help provide a brighter future for children by educating and supporting their caregivers.
Did you know that kids can lose more than 2% of their body weight in sweat before they even realize they are thirsty?! It’s up to parents and caregivers to remind children of the dangers of heat. Most kids don’t realize the effects of sun and heat exposure until heat exhaustion has already set in. Because it should always be left to a supervising adult to determine the danger and risk of heat exposure, please bear in mind the following heat related tips!
Tip # 1. Minimize sun exposure.
Tip #2. Drink water. Drink water. Drink water.
Tip #3. Check with your child care provider or camp host about heat index policies associated with outdoor play.
Tip #4. If possible, stay indoors and in air-conditioned areas.
Tip #5. Wear loose, well-ventilated clothing.
Tip #6. Encourage children to eat water-rich foods like fruits and vegetables.
Tip #7. Have cold compresses ready for use after the kids come inside.
Tip #8. Keep in mind, with excessive heat usually comes severe storms. Check your local radar often-especially when playing in the pool or enjoying other water activities.
Tip #7. Know the signs of heat exhaustion & heat stroke (see photo below).

- Bubble mixture – a commercial mix from a bubble blowing set will work but we’re sure this would also work with a good quality DIY mix
- Food coloring
- Bubble wands
- Cups and/or trays to dip your wands into
- Large sheets of painting paper
Simply tip a little bubble mixture into each tray or cup – one for each color, and then add a little food coloring to each tray and stir gently – you don’t want to make too many bubbles in your cup because bubbles don’t work so well when the mixture is all bubbly. Then it’s time to blow bubbles all over your paper.
This is a great summer activity to take outdoors (trust us, you’ll want to do this outside or you will probably end up with popped bubble marks all over your walls)! Kids can work on exploring process art as each work will be different and experiment with colors!
Tip 1**Try asking children to predict what colors they can create when they blow two different colored bubbles on the same spot of their paper!
Tip 2**Work on breath control by asking children to blow gently and harder. See what happens to the bubbles when different breath strengths are used!
